Black Caviar Breyer® Model Horse Released in time for Christmas
Black Caviar, Australian Champion Thoroughbred racehorse, unbeaten in 22 race starts is the highest rated sprinter in the world. She has created international hysteria by shattering records and delivering unrivalled performances on two continents!
Black Caviar’s most recent victory, was in the 2012 G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot in the United Kingdom, which was followed by a special congratulatory pat from Her Majesty the Queen. This incredible performance highlighted just how exceptional Black Caviar is, as she was the first mare to win this race in almost 30 years!
Breyer - Makers of the World’s Finest Model Horses Since 1950™ have released the Black Caviar Model, an official Black Caviar product endorsed by Black Caviar’s connections to commemorate her unbeaten record and remarkable victory at Royal Ascot.
A percentage of profits from the Black Caviar Breyer Model will be donated to the National Jockeys' Trust.
Black Caviar was honoured with a Government Reception earlier this week, whereby the Black Caviar Breyer Model was admired by the Premier of Victoria, Victorian Minister for Racing, Trainer Peter Moody and Black Caviar’s owners, breeder and all those connected to this remarkable champion.
Black Caviar is trained by Peter Moody and has been ridden by jockey Luke Nolen in all but three races. Known as ‘Nelly’ to her friends, Black Caviar’s winnings total more than $6.8 million Australian Dollars. As of June 2012, she holds the modern day world record for the longest winning streak in international racing, breaking the records of 19 successive wins held jointly by Australasian champions Gloaming and Desert Gold and the U.S.A.’s Zenyatta.
Breyer - Celebrating the Spirit of the Horse.
Founded in 1950, Breyer model horses, which began as artists sculptures are all handcrafted and hand-painted with airbrushes and paintbrushes. Approximately 20 different artisans handle each individual Breyer model from start to finish – a process, which, 62 years later, is still done by human hands, not machines. Breyer are renowned for their realistic and authentic model horses and accessories for play and display and are especially well-known for their ‘portrait models’ of real champions and legends.
Even today, no two Breyer model horses are ever exactly alike! Breyer artisans have hand-crafted the finest model horses from the world’s most popular breeds for both play and collecting. Horses such as Phar Lap, Zenyatta, Secretariat, Rachel Alexandra and Ravel have all been honored in the Breyer stable of champions.
Breyer has become Hollywood's "go-to" company for horse films. Breyer has made the official model horse of Michael Morpurgo's War Horse, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, Seabiscuit, Dreamer, The Horse Whisperer, Black Beauty, Flicka and more.
